Falling objects are not a major risk on NEO opeartions, though I
suspect that objects with large inertia will need to be handled with
care. Probabley more dangerous is dismemberment from crew straying
into particle beam from the VASIMR units. This happens specifically to
those in litigation support, but that is entirely coincidental.

Well David Scott got some really badly bruised fingernails while drilling
on the moon in 1971 during Apollo 15. But it wasn't for water.
